Pride will be on the line for India when they attempt to avoid a rare clean sweep in Wednesday's final ODI against Australia in Canberra.
Australia lead the series 2-0 and have the chance to record their first whitewash against India in any format since 1999.
India batsman Shreyas Iyer said it was important for his team to avoid a 3-0 result.
"We are really determined to go out there and win the next game and see to it that we don't have a clean sweep," Iyer said.
"The two losses, we are going to take it very positively because we played really good cricket in terms of batting.
"Obviously the bowling wasn't up to the mark, but I'm sure the bowlers - they're really positive with their work ethic."
Big scores have been the order of the day throughout the series, with neither side posting a total below 300.
India won't have to deal with the injured David Warner (groin), but Steve Smith has posted back-to-back centuries and again looms as the danger man.
Australia's totals of 6-374 and 4-389 have been simply too hard to match for India.
Iyer said it was a tough gig for India's bowlers coming straight from the IPL to perform in Australia.
"If you see the amount of workload they've gone through in the IPL playing continuous 14 games and then after that coming here, staying in quarantine - definitely it plays on your mind," Iyer said.
"And it plays with every individual in the team, it's not just bowlers.
"They are world-class bowlers and with the mindset they have they'll definitely come back strong in the next game.
"I really believe in them."
